Training course THERMOGRAPHY

“Thermography” – cod. TH

According to UNI/PdR 56:2019 “Certification of personnel in charge of non-destructive tests in the civil engineering field”, UNI EN ISO 9712:2012 and RINA RC / C14 Regulation for the certification of personnel in charge of non-destructive tests in the industrial field.


The course includes the study of the methodology, the analysis of case studies, practical exercises with subsequent processing of data for preparation for the 2nd level RINA exam.
